Foursquare Tips

  • I always get cheese fries
  • Love the chocolate shakes!
  • Burgers or soul food is the thing to order here. Burger buns are a tad soft. Open-faced turkey plate, chicken fried steak, are also good. Best shake on the menu: cherry, in my humble opinion.
  • If you like classic diner fare, milkshakes, burgers, etc...this is the place. Breakfast is served all day, and the classic 2 eggs, home fries, and toast is just $6.75. Dinner is from 11am to 10pm.
  • Weekend mornings sit on the patio; and say Hi to Linda Pigman. My favorite waitress.
  • Breakfast in an old fashion diner.
  • The waffles and the bacon is on point
  • Neglectful servers.. What's worse!
  • The milkshakes are amazing.
  • Try the Philly steak cheese omelette awesome. Very very very friendly staff! And the egg creams are real!
  • Seriously this is the best chocolate milkshake I've had in a super long time!
  • One of the best late night spots in the city! The food is great and the milkshakes/malts are awesome!
  • Best grilled cheese and milk shakes in the country. Also good if you want breakfast anytime.
  • Very snooty people. While walking I got the biggest "I don't belong here look" and the woman at the table next me is graphically describing someone bloody broken nose. Food is great btw!
  • This place is filthy and smelled like chlorox and pee. And the food, French fries and tuna club had no flavor. Do not eat here.
  • I've been coming here for years and its awesome!!! Joyce is the best!!!!
  • Oh baby get me some Meatloaf Dinner! It's so thick and meatlofy
  • Omlelicies time for nomnom Philly Steak & Cheese Omelette.

  • Joyce is the best waitress, hands down! Get the 6A or spinach benedict if you go for breakfast. The chicken pot pie, stuffed peppers and meatloaf are super, too!
